At the end of each month I add up my finished projects & give the tally to Peg or Kris. They, of course, are the One Project A Month mathematicians. Thanks ladies!
This month my maths tell me to add 8 projects. WooHoo...

At the recent Wyee retreat... mentioned here here... I also managed to make another project bag... affectionately known as a FaT Bag. Of course I mean FAT QUARTERS... not those gorgeous ladies!
This one has batting inside... just for some padded comfort of notions.
It measures 10inch square & has a simple zip closing top with a pretty dotty lining inside.

...well although it's Friday Night... there is very little sewing going on here.
You see, there are a whole bunch of FRiEnDs (mostly bloggers too) up here for Girls Day in The Country being held in Nundle NSW.  We are enjoying each others company... some delicious food... a little friendly banter... perhaps a glass or two of refreshments... with heaps of laughter thrown in.
So after a lovely day & evening... I'm finishing the night off with just a quick stitch of this...
I hope YoU had a wonderful time sewing with Wendy & all her friends at FNSI tonight.
You can see what others got up to in the FNSI department over HERE.

Where I am... I believe the MoTTo is
what happens in Nundle... 
stays in Nundle...

CatcHinG Up

... on a few projects that really should have been finished way before this... but hey...
LiFe sometimes gets in the way & the cubbyhole goes vacant..
DD1 needed a new "frill" for the baby room window... this time in GReeN.
It matches the "leaves" on the wall perfectly.

* * * * *
Finished a small Christmas embroidery... then made it into a tree ornie.
I'll link this "ornie" to... Christmas Thru the Year (CTTY) with Anthea too.
* * * * *
And finally... I traced out the applique shapes for a "garden" quilt which is on my WIP list.
Are you trying to "catch up" on some projects too?
I think putting them on the blog helps to keep me motivated...
SO if you have some on the go... why don't you do a post about them.
* * * * *

I'm off to the airport today to pick up my friend SHEZ from here
Tomorrow we have an easy 3.5 - 4 hour drive up to Nundle... a New South Wales country town, north west from home. We also have the company of DEB from here for the drive up & for the weekend as well. You see... Girls Day in the Country...is on once again.  WooHoo...

BacK HoMe

after a FuN few days away... although this retreat & socialising caper is exhausting!
Seven lovely ladies kept me company while at the weekend retreat at Wyee.
We ate well... shared a few laughs... perhaps a glass or two of refreshments ... AND I managed to get LoTs accomplished too... BoNuS !
First project... & a finish... was my FaLaLa wall hanger.
It's a Nancy Halvorsen design from her book... Jingle all the Way in the Art to Heart series.
I'm linking this FiNiSH to the March Lets Book It  hosted by Sharon from Vroomans Quilts.
You may notice that I didn't add the scallop edge at the bottom... well ... perhaps IF I had read the instructions I would have noticed it BeFoRe I finished it...ooppsss...
Oh well... now it's an original...
* * * * *
My RoSeS quilt top is now finished & ready for quilting... after a good ironing of course...lol.
I just need to purchase the backing & off it will go to my friend Julie.
Woo Hoo another UFO will be crossed off shortly... yippeeeeee.
March celebrates... St. Patricks day
